I took Metformin for six mmonths before stopping because it wasn't working and it made me feel ill.

However, i have a warning to you all. If you are under 16 stone (sorry, don't know the US equivalent) you should not be taking metformin. At that weight, the drug uses the sugar in your system to feed the cysts rather than shrink them as it should. There is a chance that it could make the syndrome worse.

i got this information from a friend who is a consultant gynaecologist.

i'm going to see my gynaecologist i june and will let you know of the outcome from the questions i'm going to ask her, namely why i was prescribed it in the first place, and what happens now. Keep your fingers crossed for me that i'm not sterile because of her mistake, i'll keep you updated.
